CHI, The Spa at Shangri-La draws inspiration from the origins of the Shangri-La legend, a place of personal peace, enchantment and well-being.
Shangri-La Hotel, Edsa, brings to Manila CHI, The Spa, a private sanctuary of calm, personal space and timelessness in a "spa within a spa" concept.
Nestled in the hotel's Garden Wing, this luxury spa features a variety of single, double and specialty treatment suites. There are also outdoor bathing facilities, relaxation lounges, a library and a yoga studio with classes. CHI offers treatments based on Chinese and native Philippines healing concepts, including the traditional Hilot massage.
In traditional Chinese philosophy, ch’i or "Qi" is the universal life force that governs well-being and personal vitality. For good health to be maintained, it is believed that ch’i must flow freely within the body and, when blocked, "dis-ease" and illness follow.
Movement is therefore a key element in releasing blockages. Body massage, exercise, stretching, hydrotherapy, and movement of the mind through relaxation and meditation combine to assist the body's natural renewal and form the basis of the CHI spa philosophy.
